One of the stars of Vigil has hinted that a second season could be in the works, as ‘conversations’ are being had about the future of the BBC series.
Since its launch at the end of August, Vigil has left the nation sitting on the edge of their seats, as Detective Chief Inspector Amy Silva (Suranne Jones) is faced with the mystery of who killed Craig Burke (Martin Compston), a crewman on the submarine HMS Vigil.
There are six episodes in total in the show, with the season finale airing at the end of September.
Nonetheless, diehard fans are undoubtedly hoping they’ll be told that a season two is on the way.
While speaking to RadioTimes.com, Anjli Mohindra, who plays medical officer Tiffany Docherty in the drama, divulged that ‘there’s been conversations’ about a follow-up season.
‘I think there’s stuff on the horizon. But nothing confirmed just yet,’ she said.
The actor added that the final episode of the series is going to be ‘hugely satisfying’ for viewers, describing the upcoming finale as ‘nail-biting’.
‘The thrill factor keeps going up a notch. I was a bit breathless reading that last episode!’ she said.
Before Vigil launched, series creator and writer Tom Edge teased the future of the show, implying that any subsequent tales may not take place on a submarine, as ‘we have probably told as many of the stories as we would wish to tell on a submarine’.
Tom explained that he would ‘love to burrow’ into some of the characters in the show, adding: ‘So if there’s a will to do it from everyone else then certainly I would be up for it.’
It was recently revealed that Vigil had become the BBC’s most watched new drama of the year after garnering more than 10million viewers.
The BBC’s official press office account revealed 10.2m tuned into the first episode of the thriller.
The tweet from the press office read: ‘Episode one of #Vigil has attracted an audience of 10.2m viewers across its first 7 days, making it the BBC’s most watched new drama of the year so far.’
Vigil returns tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
